To the Editor:
Psalm 106: 19-20: “They made a calf at Horeb and worshipped the molten image. They exchanged their glory for the image of an ox eating grass. They forgot God their Savior.” (Yashua).
The word “pastor,” based on the word “pasture,” means: “grass eaten by cattle.”
So yeah, if people worship the pastor and the church instead of God then they have indeed exchanged their birthright for a pot of beans like Esau, or for a bottle of wine like Noah, or for a forbidden piece of fruit from a tree like Adam.
In the Lord’s prayer we are commanded to make this earth a home for God; and “God,” as we are reminded at 1 John 4:16, “is Love.”
“Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven.” Matt 6:10
If we “graze,” that is, respond superficially to scripture and obey church teachings and reject our savior, then we will have exchanged this glory and our Divine Providence for grass.
